Living in the heart of Beaver Nation is a great way to get connected to life on campus. More than 800 sophomores and above--many of them transfer students--call Oregon State residence halls home. With a variety of room and suite options, and professional live-in staff to answer questions, living on campus can simplify your transfer process.

 
Where to Live

All residence halls are open to transfer students, but many choose to live with other upper division students in halls that are either partially or fully set aside for sophomore and above, transfer, and graduate students.

Living on campus is a great way to set up a successful transition to OSU:  you are a few minutes walking from the center of campus life, and it’s the best way to get connected to campus resources while meeting other transfer students new to OSU.
